El Dorado Maroma, A Beachfront Resort, by Karisma, proudly announced debut of Latin America’s first and only Palafitos – Overwater Bungalows. Translated from Spanish Palafitos means simply a “Stilt House,” luxury accommodation is available for booking starting March 2016, and is set to open at the award-winning, adults-only El Dorado Maroma, a Beachfront Resort, by Karisma, in September 2016.
The Palafito rooms are the first of their kind in Mexico and any where in the Caribbean. The next closest place to find over-water rooms like these is the south pacific. Currently under construction and surrounded by the bright turquoise waters of Riviera Maya’s Maroma Beach – voted by Travel Channel as one of the top 10 beaches in the world – the first phase of 30 elegant suites will offer breathtaking ocean views, glass-bottom floors, direct ladder access to the ocean, outdoor “Aguas del Amor” showers, private infinity pools, indoor Jacuzzis, and oversized decks with lounge chairs that look out onto the ocean horizon.
A world-class overwater restaurant and tranquil spa will complete the exclusive experience. The Gourmet Inclusive Over Water Ocean Grill & Wine Bar will feature an open kitchen with scenic views of the Caribbean Sea for breakfast, lunch and dinner, including menu creations inspired by the ocean and a glass floor private dining room that will make for unforgettable intimate events. Náay Spa Over the Ocean will comprise four spacious suites, delivering treatments based on traditional Mayan herbal practices and the richness of the region’s marine life, most notably highlighting the benefits of “Maroma’s Sea Moss.”
Uniquely found only in the Caribbean and rich with mineral salts, Maroma’s Sea Moss boasts high antioxidant and detoxifying powers. Guests will have the option of indoor or private outdoor treatments during which they can relish in the serene azure ocean surroundings.
Special services and amenities know no bounds at the stunning Palafitos, which will run the gamut from 24-hour room service, exclusive beach beds, customized beach picnics and full butler service on-demand to assist with everything from pre-arrival requests, packing and unpacking, reservations, and delivery of complimentary sunscreen, reading materials, refreshments and gourmet bites while at the pool or beach, plus so much more.
For guests seeking variety, the Gourmet Inclusive® offerings at El Dorado Maroma are just a swift walk across the beach, comprising three pools, six premier restaurants, and four bars, all tended with an incredibly high level of service by dedicated staff. Guests can choose to partake in a broad range of resort activities from dancing, yoga and beach volleyball to cooking lessons, kayaking and bocce.
The bungalows will be ready for bookings September 1, with rates starting at $665 per adult, per night, encompassing the Gourmet Inclusive Experience of a la carte dining, premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, full-service concierge, and 24-hour room service.
